Harbor Freight Lift

The Harbor Freight Lift is identical to one I purchased 2 years ago from another source.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND these lifts.

While they will handle the Lt's weight at first, later several components on mine began to fail:
-the safety eye-bolt cross rod was bent by the LT's weight on the 4th usage.

-the set-bolt on the main pivot rod would not prevent the pivot rod from working it's way out one side or another.

-one of the cross braces on the lift was welded at an angel resulting in a tilt to the platform when fully raised.

-the hydraulic pump regularly fails to pressurize resulting in the lift not working at all. It requires frequent "priming" to keep it operating.

And, it requires some form of side platform for ease of use as the lift is very narrow.

All in all, if I had it to do over again I would spend the money for a better lift.
